:: Mango, Almond Quinoa Salad::

I was served this for dinner the other night and had three plate fulls. Really fresh and delicious.

2 cups Quinoa (cook like you would rice)
3 mangoes chopped
Generous handful of cilantro, chopped
Any nuts and seeds you have on hand (toasted at 350 F for about 8 minutes or until slightly golden); I used pumpkin seeds and slivered almonds
2 peppers chopped (I don't use green ones in this recipe)
Chopped red onion (I didn't use this last night)
Dried fruit (I used raisins and cranberries)
Option: Clove of garlic


Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Yogourt and mayo
Curry powder
